Sound dropping off when on Apple TV

When I turn on my Apple TV it has no sound and I need to link the sound into my beam and Sonos speakers every time.  This happens for both movies and music. I love the Sonos sound but so far my experience with the system is it’s very temperamental.

Hi @Whirlygig.

Thanks for reaching out and welcome to the community! Let me help you figure this out.

How is the Beam connected to the TV, is it through HDMI-ARC or optical port?

Kindly submit a diagnostic report through the Sonos app when the issue occurs, and reply with the confirmation number. I'd start by reviewing your system,  it will help in identifying what's possibly causing the issue.
